FROM THE VULGATE OF MOTHER
Behold the mansion reared by daxlal Jack.
See the malt stirred in many a plethoric sack,
In the proud cirque of I van's bivouac.
, Mark how the rats' felonious fangs invade
The golden store in John's pavilion laid.
Anon, with velvet foot and Tarquin strides.
Subtle Grimalkin to his quarry glides,
Grimalkin grim, that slew the fierce rodent,
Whose tooth insidious Johan's sackcloth rent I
Lol now the deep-mouthed canine foe's assault,
That vexed the avenger of the stolen malt,"
Stored in the hallowed precincts of that hall
Which rose complete at John's creative call.
nere stilks the impetuous cow with crumpled horn,
Whereon the exacerbating hounds were torn,
who bayed the feline slaughter-beast, that slew
The rat predacious, whose keen fangs ran through
The textile fibres that involved the grain
Which lay in Han's inviolate domain.
Here walks forlorn the damsal crowned with rue,
Lacitif erions spoils from vaccine, dugs! who drew.
Of that corniculate beaste whose tortuous horn
Tossed to the clouds in fierce vindictive scorn,
The harrying hound, whose braggart bark and stir
Arched the lithe spine and reared the indignant fur '
Of Puss, that with vermicidial claw,
Struck the weird rat in whose insatiate maw,
Lay reeking malt that erst in Juan's courts we saw.
Robed in senescent garb that seems in sooth
Too long a prey to Chronos' iron tooth,
Behold the man whose amorous lips incline.
Full with young Eros' osculative sign,
To the Morn maiden, whose lac-albin hands '
Drew albu-lactic wealth from lacteal glands
Of that immortal bovine, by whose horn
Distort, to rr aim ethereal was borne
The beast catulean, vcxer of that sly
Ulysses quadrupedal, who made die
The old audacious rat that dared devonr
Antecedaneous Ale in John's domestic bower.
Lo, here, with hirsute honors doffed succinct
Of Baponacious locks, the Priest who linked
In Hymen's golden bands the torn unthfif t, ,
Whose means exigious stared from many a rift .
Even as he kissed the virgin all forlorn,
Who milked thecow with implicated horn, '
Who in fine wrath the canine torturer skied, .
That dared to vex the insidious muricide,
who let auroral effluence through the pelt
Of the sly rat that robbed the palace John had built.
The loud cantankerous Shanghae comes at last,
Whose shouies arouse the shorn ecclesiast
Who sealed the vows of Hymen's sacrament.
To him, who robed in garments indigent,
Exosculates the damsel lachrymose,
The emulgator of that honored brute morose.
That tossed the dog, that worried the cat, that kilt
The rat that eat the malt that lay in the house that
John had built.

The Cleveland Bay Horse' originated
in. the district of Cleveland, in Yorkshire,
ngland ; and n now found, not only in
hat district, and throughout the counties
of York and Durham, but in almost al
parts of the Island. The breed seems
to have been formed by the iudicious
crossing of the race-horse, with the orig
inal breeds of the district, and was not
the. result of a- happy accident, but of
careful and long continued cultivation.
The color of this breed is bay, as the
name indicates; the height is generally
sixteen hands or over, and the weight be
tween fourteen and fifteen hundred
pounds. The limbs have sufficient bone
and muscle, and are entirely clean.
These horses have a good breast, an ob
lique shoulder, a fine neck, and a noble
carriage. As might be expected, from
the origine, this race combine fine action
with great strength.
The Cleveland Bay is considered to be
the best carriage horse in the world ; and
for such purpose, is in great demand in
France, as well as Great Britain, is
equally well suited to ordinary farm
work, and on account of his fast walk, is
especially fitted for the plow.
If horses of this description had occa
sionally been imported, instead of race
horses, the interest of the farming com
munity would probably have been more
promoted. Thorough-breeds have con
tributed greatly to the improvement of the
larger and coarser racers, but our horses
are generally too small, to he essentially
benefitted by such a cross, except in rela
tion to speed. For a farm horse, strength
is of more consequence than speed..
Could a horse be found, uniting activity
with strength, that, assuredly, would be
the horse for the farmer. Such, we be
lieve, is the Cleveland Bay. A beauti
f ul horse of his variety, was recently im
ported, and is now owned by Brutus J.
Clay, of Kentucky.
When farming is conducted on scien
tific principles, the increase of crops,
would amply compensate for the labor
and capital expended in the production;
but when it is, as too often happens, re
garded as one of those callings that only
require strong arms and industrious hab
its to ensure success, it is very likely to
prove anything but successful so long as
the true principles of cultivating and
maintaining the fertility of the soil re
main unlearned. Strong hands and pa
tient industry might suffice while popula
tion continued thin and scattered, and
while the land was subject to a very
small amount of impost, but in these days,
when population has become dense, when
the land is subject to high rent and hea
vy taxes, stong arms and industrious ha
bits will not akine suffice to enable the
farmer to meet and overcome his difficul
ties. In these days the battle is not with
with the strong, but with the intelligent ;
and ir the tanner expects to succeed in
his profession, he must begin by acquir
ing a knowledge of the nature of the ma
terials he has to operate upon the na
ture of the productions he has to raise
from them and how best his great ma
chine, the soil, shall be best maintained
in efficient order.

dispense the steady fragrance pf good
deeds in middle life; and our ideal cf old
